CASology #249: WARM

Hello, friends!  Thanks for stopping by today!  Just in time for the new cue card at CASology.

I used supplies from our sponsor, STAMPlorations, to make my card.  I know I love warm coffee all year round!  You may not notice right away, but I actually cut apart a "Warm Winter Wishes" die sentiment to just use the "warm wishes" portion on my card.  Isn't it great when you can use your seasonal dies for other purposes? I love that!

Stamps: STAMPlorations (Sketchy Coffee Cups); Papr Smooches (Shadows)
Dies: STAMPlorations (Warm Winter Wishes)
Inks: MFT (Black Licorice), Tim Holtz Distress Inks (Barn Door, Tumbled Glass, Shabby Shutters, Carved Pumpkin)
Other: Cuttlebug embossing folder border (Juli's Garden); DCWV brown glitter card stock

I am also playing along with several challenges today, including the following:

(1) STAMPlorations May CAS Card Challenge with the optional color twist of "feminine colors."

(2)  The Paper Players #344 - A Color Challenge from Claire using the fun colors below; I managed to find a patterned paper in my stash that had all four colors, then I added to it by splattering ink in the same four colors behind the cup:

(3)  CAS Mix Up Card Challenge  for May using this grid (I did stamping + splattering + paper-piecing as well as dry embossing):

I can't wait to see how you interpret the WARM cue card this week!  Be sure to link up your card by noon on Monday (Central time). You will also be inspired by the many ways our Design Team and Guest Designer interpreted the cue this week...be sure to check out their blogs, too!
